the specification only mandates certain property types depending on the 
compliance level and the optional features that the repository supports.
An extremly simple level 1 repository could only consist of one node, 
the root node. so, it only needs to expose the properties of nt:base. 
That is, the properties jcr:primaryType and jcr:mixinTypes, both of type 

But not all test cases follow this strict view of a level 1 repository. 
Most test cases require at least a couple of nodes and some string
